The Zurich Marathon of Barcelona, at record pace
- The Zurich Marathon of Barcelona already exceeds 5,000 registered.
- This figure had never been reached 5 months before the celebration of the race.
- The test, which will take place on March 15, 2020, may aim to break the historical record of participation.
The Zurich Marathon of Barcelona 2020 advances at record pace. With five months left before its celebration, the threshold of 5,000 participants had never been exceeded. This fact makes the organization foresee that, if this trend is maintained, You can beat the participation record.
There are several factors that have motivated this growth. One of them the international promotions that the organization of the race carries out throughout the year, in some of the most important marathons in the world: Paris, Berlin or London are some examples. Globalization is a fact, and is proven by the record of nationalities existing in the past Zurich Marathon of Barcelona: Up to 107 different countries were represented in the race, which had 50% of foreign participants.
The Barcelona marathon is positioned as the most international race in Spain.
Also, the bet of the organization to improve the route by premiering a circuit designed to fly in the last edition, has paid off. The record reached by Alemu Bekele from 2: 06’04 in 2019 in the men's category and from Kuftu Tahir, with 2: 24’44 in women, show the rapidity of a monumental layout that excited its participants: the passage through Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, the Sagrada Familia or the Camp Nou, are just some of the monuments that the corridors will cross.
The success of this new circuit released last March, which lowers the percentage of positive slope by 20% and softens the most complicated turns, It is one of the factors that explains this increase in enrollees. Participant services are also one of the strengths of the test, which offers the runner the maximum facilities from the moment of registration.
The Sports Expo, the number 1 sports fair in Spain or the more than 40 animations that the organization enables along the way, guarantee a unique experience to the participants. Barcelona dresses up thanks to the enthusiasm that the Barcelona public demonstrates year after year filling the streets to encourage the passage of the runners, making the Zurich Marathon of Barcelona one of the most important sport parties in the city.
